Here is a check list of typos that may be hidden in your document/brochure/rack card/divine design that need eliminating before going to print. Don’t be dazzled by the stylish design, miss typos and they will multiply by the 1,000s when it is printed.

The Checklist

๐Ÿ—น Phone numbers

๐Ÿ—น Website address

๐Ÿ—น Email address

๐Ÿ—น Postal address

๐Ÿ—น Postcode

๐Ÿ—น Possesive noun or plural noun  – should it be ‘s or  s’ or just s

๐Ÿ—น Consistency with lowercase/capital letters and full stops in your bullet point lists

๐Ÿ—น Spelling – missing letters

๐Ÿ—น Spelling – look for correct spelling of incorrect words that the spell check would miss, e.g. you may have used the word tables where you meant to use tablets

๐Ÿ—น Spelling mistakes in images

๐Ÿ—น Check figures and maths calculations

๐Ÿ—น Colour and size consistency with headings and body text

๐Ÿ—น Check you have permission to use photos (copyright and/or permission from any people featured in the image)

Efficient typo spotting requires teamwork so as well as checking yourself, we recommend you ask one or two people with “fresh eyes” who have not previously seen the design to also proof read for you.

Have fun capturing the critters!
